Chief Executive Officer of NYA, Mr. Pius Enam Hadzide

The National Youth Authority has indicated that the Wa Youth Resource Center Named BK Adams Youth Resource Center will be completed before 2023.

The CEO explained that there has been a massive change in the scope of work since the conception of the projects and said that that partly explains the seeming delay in the completion of these projects. “These projects are now four stands instead of the initial one, in some cases like in Axim there are now hostel facilities, there are ICT and Counseling Centers, etc.” he said adding that these projects were more than just sporting stadia.

So view my visit as preparatory he said to the contractors.
